Let’s talk about happy decor?
Studies have proven that if you’re happy with your home, you’re most certainly happy with your life…
So I’m giving you 5 easy tips that you can use to add joy to your home and your everyday!
Let’s get started!
1. Add colour
Can you think of a better way to start this list?!
Colour is life!!!
It’s so powerful that by adding just small touches, like a little cushion or a lampshade, you can create a massive impact on the mood of your home.
Yellow is my go-to happy colour, as it feels like sunshine.
But orange and pink are also great!
You can add little splashes of them with your accessories, soft furnishings and furniture.
Just don’t forget that when mixing these energetic colours, keep most of your walls in a calming colour palette, like pale blues, shades of white or light shades of grey, for example.
This way, your room will feel not only colourful but also fresh and bright.
What takes me to our second tip.
2. Let the sun in
Did you know that adding more natural light in your home will improve your mood?
So, replace heavy, thick curtains with lighter ones (like linen curtains for example), hang some mirrors and keep the colours of the walls light. As it helps to bounce the light around the room.
Then just soak up the sun and enjoy your home!
3. Analyse your space.
A happy home is also a relaxing home, so de-clutter and leave room to breathe.
Throw away everything that you don’t need and maybe designate a place (a room, a cupboard or just a drawer) to hide away the everyday mess (mine is the sideboard in our dining room).
If you organise your things and take the clutter out of sight, you’ll feel more at ease and happier.
4. Surround yourself with what makes you smile
This is SO important… your home should be a collection of what you love.
If it doesn’t make you feel good, just toss it away and make room for what puts a smile on your face!
And make sure you display the things you love too!
You can create a gallery wall with your favourite photos and other objects that are close to your heart.
Or maybe you can get a glass dome to display that little toy you loved as a kid for example.
Ok, and finally, my fave tip!
5. Add fresh flowers and plants
They have the power bringing life, colour, scent and set the mood of your room!
And the best thing is that you don’t need to make fancy arrangements to display them.
Just a few pretty blooms in a glass jar or a cute jug can do wonders to your home! Plus they are SO good for the soul!!!!
